Missie would be an elephant - smart, but a little set in her ways.
Cole would a young feline - intelligent but easily distracted.
Learning wise I'm not sure... If I were to ask Little Man, he'd probably say Zebra since it seems to currently be his favorite animal...at least I think it is since he said, "We need a house in our house with lots of doors that we can put locks on so we can lock in pandas and zebras because they're so cute!"
For him, I think a cheetah...he's fast at learning, and then needs a lot of down time lol
For Jamie....hmmm...she distracts herself, doesn't listen, and works incredibly slow...I KNOW! A very stubborn puppy. Maybe if I smack her nose with a newspaper and feed her treats it'll speed up the day?? (j/k I promise I won't smack her with a news paper...I might still feed her treats though ;) )
That's so funny.....IF....hahahahahahaaaaaa :)
I saw this video once of this giraffe eating his leaves in peace. Only giraffe around, tons of trees. Another giraffe came in, and smacked the crap out of the first one to get his leaves from his tree, regardless of the many other unoccupied trees. That would be my oldest and my 4th.
My 2nd is probably a goofy puppy who loves to love, but can sometimes walk into walls. :)
My 3rd is probably an eagle. Beautiful, terrifying, great at her job.
My 5th....hmmm......He's more like Wile E. Coyote. :)
My 3 year old would be a flying squirrel. One second he's sitting on the sofa next to me and the next he is literally launching himself in the air to leap into a chair across the room.
My 6 year old is like a bulldog because he's tenacious and keeps working and working until he gets it.
Hmmmm... LO is probably a nightmarish hybrid of chimpanzee with tools and (as I imagine chimp babies) he needs to move move move to learn; a stubborn ol' ox because he digs in his heels and won't budge if I lead him in a direction he doesn't want to go, AND he is resistant to change; and a fox for the cunning (and somewhat devious) nature of LO's mind. I don't want to imagine what that animal looks like, but I think I know what it SMELLS like: wet beagles!
My youngest would be a goat... grazing little bits of education here and there while being mischievious in between.
My middle would be a Wild Boar or a rhinocerous....once he picks a direction, he stampedes on until he wears himself out.
My oldest would be a lion. He really attacks learning full tilt, but then he wants to take a nap in the middle of the day.
I do not know learning wise.
But my 7 year old is a fun loving clever monkey.
My 6 year old is a cuddle teddy bear.
My 4 year old is a stubborn rhino.
My 3 year old is a cute and cuddle panda.
We gave these animals to them as babies and it is amazing how much they are like their animals.
